Debian DSA-3287-1 : openssl - security update (Logjam)

high Nessus Plugin ID 84170
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

The remote Debian host is missing a security-related update.

Description

Multiple vulnerabilities were discovered in OpenSSL, a Secure Sockets Layer toolkit.

- CVE-2014-8176 Praveen Kariyanahalli, Ivan Fratric and Felix Groebert discovered that an invalid memory free could be triggered when buffering DTLS data. This could allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) or potentially execute arbitrary code. This issue only affected the oldstable distribution (wheezy).

- CVE-2015-1788 Joseph Barr-Pixton discovered that an infinite loop could be triggered due to incorrect handling of malformed ECParameters structures. This could allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service.

- CVE-2015-1789 Robert Swiecki and Hanno Bock discovered that the X509_cmp_time function could read a few bytes out of bounds. This could allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) via crafted certificates and CRLs.

- CVE-2015-1790 Michal Zalewski discovered that the PKCS#7 parsing code did not properly handle missing content which could lead to a NULL pointer dereference. This could allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) via crafted ASN.1-encoded PKCS#7 blobs.

- CVE-2015-1791 Emilia Kasper discovered that a race condition could occur due to incorrect handling of NewSessionTicket in a multi-threaded client, leading to a double free. This could allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash).

- CVE-2015-1792 Johannes Bauer discovered that the CMS code could enter an infinite loop when verifying a signedData message, if presented with an unknown hash function OID. This could allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service.

Additionally OpenSSL will now reject handshakes using DH parameters shorter than 768 bits as a countermeasure against the Logjam attack (CVE-2015-4000 ).

Solution

Upgrade the openssl packages.

For the oldstable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in version 1.0.1e-2+deb7u17.

For the stable distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed in version 1.0.1k-3+deb8u1.
